AT&T Savings Scholarship: Internet and Education

My eyes were dry and almost as red as Netflix itself. I told myself ” One more episode, one more” continually. The sun was about to come up as I had just spent the entire night reliving my childhood watching several episodes of “Full House”. It’s amazing how much the internet can offer you. From feeling nostalgic, to feeling surprised or even frightened, the freedom of being able to watch particular shows online has revolutionized the concept of media. The internet has no boundaries. And being able to watch t.v. shows and t.v. castings online has made the browser much more useful and essential. The significant shift of the on demand revolution has given us viewers the power to be able to watch whatever we want, whenever we want.This idea of entertainment has positively influenced me in many areas of my life. Whether academically or socially, I feel that my mind is much more creative and imaginative because of the exposure online media offers. I am caught up with the latest fads, latest news, latest trends. And at the same time I observe deeper concepts within these fads, such as ideas of conformity and acceptance.

Now speaking from a student’s point of view I have experienced beneficial outcomes of this transition because I am able to consistently learn and absorb various concepts from various online shows. From new vocabulary, to literary concepts the idea of online media assists in expanding my knowledge. For example, in my AP Literature class, themes are heavily crucial and being able to watch movies online with great use of symbolism boosts my understanding of that particular notion. The fact that I as a student individual have the power and access to explore many many media coverages through the web browser, helps me develop a mind of creativity. The evolution of technology continues to amaze because the more it evolves the more it makes my life easier. At the end of the day, without online access, knowledge itself would not be where it is at today.

It’s hard to put into words what he’s meant to this organization on the court, off the court. If you’ve seen or read the release that our owner Dr. Buss put out, I think that puts it as succinctly as possible what he means and what he meant to this organization. From the bottom of our heart, my heart, I thank him for his contributions and I wish him well… …I have not talked to Derek yet. I’ve talked to his representative and representatives and as you might expect, he’s probably not quite ready to have that kind of discussion. I don’t know if he’s spoken to anybody else in the organization. I do expect to speak to him shortly, perhaps today. Maybe tomorrow. I understand completely. It’s hard. It’s one of the hardest parts of a job that a general manager has – separating the emotions of a relationship that you built for many, many years, in this case over 10 years. He was drafted by Jerry West I believe in 1996 and now here it is in [2012] and he went away for a year or two and he’s been with us for many, many years. So, it’s a hard thing to do, but that is what general managers do. Part of our job is separating the emotion and keeping the franchise moving forward and that’s what we tried to do.” — Mitch Kupchak on trading Derek Fisher

Thank you Fish.
